Description presents "The Caisson Song" ("The Caissons Go Rolling Along"), the original unofficial US Army song. Composed in 1908, "The Caisson Song" quickly became popular among the US Army - especially in the Field Artillery. The song was the basis for John Philip Sousa's "US Field Artillery" and later, "The Army Goes Rolling Along" (the official US Army Song). Complete with lyrics, this singalong version of "The Caisson Song" is performed by the US Army Chorus.
